Expert Tips

The humble tomato packs a nutritious punch. One medium tomato has about as much fiber as a slice of whole wheat bread. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins C and A, plus contain potassium and phosphorous.

Enjoy this refreshing salsa with grilled chicken or pork or as a dip with tortilla chips.

If you want a hotter salsa, leave the seeds in the jalapeño chiles, or add another one!
